Dog | Cat Leg Cast Kit
Soft bandages and hard casts protect underlying tissues in pets, preventing them from self-trauma, such as licking, which will delay healing and promote infection. Instead, our cat and dog leg cast kits help protect your pet from further injury or infection.
Soft bandages protect wounds, incisions, or injuries while healing. Meanwhile, a regular medical bandage protects the wound surface from contamination with dirt or debris from the environment. These bandages can be used to cover a layer of topical medication applied to the wound, preventing the topical medication from being rubbed or licked off. In some cases, a bandage is used to hold an injured part against another part of the body. For example, bandaging an injured ear to the head or an injured or broken toe to the other toes on the foot.
A hard cast provides protection and support to a bone or ligament area. It serves the same purpose of protection as a bandage but has the additional benefit of restricting movement of the injured area. If a hard cast is to support a fractured bone, it is applied so that it immobilizes both joints above and below the fracture.
